1. Floyd vs Corrales
2. BHop vs Trinidad
3. Lewis vs Rahman II (that one two KO was the best I've ever seen in the sport)
4. Barrera vs Naz
5. Whitaker vs Chavez


Those are just my top 5 but I can list more.

DISCUSS your's please.
Thanks

Garcia vs Khan - Garcias coming out party
Pac vs Marquez I - Both men came to fight, 3 KDs in first round from Pac, and an amazing rally from Marquez, it defined what about men were about.
Naz vs Kevin Kelley - Exciting fight, an era were men came to fight
Tyson vs Berbick - To me this fight looks like David and Goliath
Hopkins vs Pascal II - Oldest man in history
Khan vs Maidana - Proved Khan could hang in there with the best of them, Proved Maidana had a lot of balls

Personally I don't look at any of those as "Signature" fights because none of them define the very best performance of either fighter. A "Signature Fight" is one that defines the very best performance a boxer/fighter has put on (A Clinic, if you will).

Hopkins had another Signature Performance vs Kelly Pavlik, some believed it was better than his bout vs Tito.

Winky had his signature bout vs Tito as well. Jones put on a clinic vs Pazienza and Toney.

pavlik had the flu and came up to 170.

tito was shot against winky.

pazienza was several weight classes and several years past his prime.

toney had the flu against roy....and really, roy didn't do much in that fight.

1. Garbage, he made no excuses and even if he was healthy he still would've have lost because he did not have the skills to deal with BHop.
2. BS, that was only the 2nd fight Tito lost, he just didn't have the skills to deal with Winky no more than he did vs BHop.
3. True enough but even if he had been at his prime and in the appropriate weight class he still would've gotten dominated.
4. Toney did not have the flu, he was drained from all the weight fluctuationing and having to lose a vast amount of weight in such a short time.

1. of course he didn't make excuses. he's not that type of fighter....but it was reported. i'm not making it up. and at 170....the weight hopkins started his career at...and a weight that pavlik never fought at...i can't help but think bhop had the advantage. had that fight been at 160...who knows? for the record, i called this bout. bhop didn't do anything i didn't expect him to do when i considered everything. not exactly a signature performance.

2. it was only his 2nd fight after a 2 yr layoff. he was as flat as an iron. anyone that has ever followed his career could see that. sure, winky looked spectacular, but that wasn't the trinidad of old. he never looked the same after the bhop loss.

3. if pazienza was in his prime...in his prime weight class...he'd still be too small for roy. only a fool would think what he did to pazienza was impressive. it's like a grown man beating up a child. not impressive.

4. again...don't kill the messenger. toney had the flu going into that fight. it was reported. roy didn't do anything spectacular in that fight.
